|This box pouch has so much glitz and glam!|
|How cute is this Miss Kate bag?|
|Quilt along with us and use #colorofmyheart|
Denise: I knew I was a quilter when I could not travel anywhere without visiting the local quilt shop. I had the measurement of the fabrics I needed for the log cabin quilts in my wallet, and whenever I stopped at a quilt store, I pulled out the paper and started looking for fabrics.
|Oh sew cute!|
Stephanie: Start slow with easy project. Just jump in and go for some crazy quilt or weekender bag. Work your way up with new challenges. Don't be afraid to cut into your favorite fabric! That's why you bought it to begin with! It doesn't do you any good sitting on a shelf collecting dust "waiting" for a special project. Every project is special!
|This sleeping bag cover is definitely a must-learn project!|
Tonya: I'm very much a "work it out as I go along" kind of maker, so I have often found that I don't have enough fabric or ribbon to quite finish a project. But I tend to just find something else from the stash or somehow make it work. I also have a tendency to skip vital steps in patterns. The first pair of shorts I ever made for my son was joined completely wrong and had to be unpicked about 3 times! You wouldn't have thought after the first unpicking I would have been more careful but, alas, I still didn't read it closely enough!
